Once Listed For $140 Million – An 11-Acre Hamptons Home Was Auctioned For $700k

A Hamptons home that was previously listed for $140 million has just been sold for $700,000.



Here’s a tale that will certainly cause you to experience a pang of remorse if you’re the type of person who just can’t resist a good offer. The Wall Street Journal reports that the 11-acre Hamptons property known as Briar Patch, once listed with an asking price of $140 million has been sold at auction – for the relatively paltry sum of just $700,000.

Since listing the house for the aforementioned $140 million price in 2014, Whittle had been attempting to sell it intermittently. Earlier this year, he listed it again for $95 million – which probably doesn’t take too much sting out of seeing it sold for $700,000.

“The main residence is expansive, marked by exquisite detail, with 6 bedrooms, 8 full bathrooms, and 2 half baths, as well as outstanding living and leisure areas. The spectacular focal point of the house, which was built with entertaining in mind, is the enormous living area with double-height, vaulted ceilings and a gorgeous fireplace. Each side of the room is lined with clerestory windows, which flood the room with light. The home also features many sets of French doors that lead to patios – ideal for dining al fresco with views of Georgica Pond and the expansive grounds.”

Then there’s the property’s guest house, which would be an improvement over where most people live all on its own, with four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms, constructed in 1990 to match the early 30s elegance of the main house. And if you don’t think seeing the home in the video below from Bespoke Real Estate would only make you feel worse about losing out on such a significant discount, here is another option:
